Talking Comics for 05.17.17. Sorry for the delay this week (me been sick) but here’s this weeks episode of Talking Comics May 10th, 2017 with Mark & Chris Hunter! Talking Comics for 05.17.17 – Generation X #1, Luke Cage #1, Sovereigns #1, Grrl Scouts Magic Socks #1, Yo-Kai Watch #1, Flash #22 (last part of The Button story-line), Secret Empire #2 & YOUR Superhero Universe?
Robert: I am looking forward to Generation X #1 out this week along with Secret Empire #2! Loved Generation X back in the day and I’m wondering how they’re going to try and capture that era again, if they can or if it will be something new. Either or works for me! Flash #22 ends The Button story-line. Also I’m VERY excited about the new Mister Miracle series – too bad it’s just a limited series but glad it is vs a new series to be cancelled early. Looks like a good bit of fun this week from DC Comics & Marvel Comics.
New WONDER WOMAN Trailer 3!Gal Gadot comes crashing through this trailer as #WonderWoman to show more insight into the WONDER WOMAN movie. I don’t know if this is a good thing or bad. Are too many trailers giving away too much for all these upcoming Summer blockbuster movie? I think so.
#WonderWoman is released in cinemas around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior. Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.
In the early 20th century, the Amazon princess Diana, who is living on the island of Themyscira, meets American military pilot Steve Trevor when he is washed ashore. After learning from him about the ongoing events of World War I, she leaves her home for London to bring an early end to the war.
#WonderWoman is the new adventure movie by Patty Jenkins, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Danny Huston, David Thewlis, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya and Robin Wright. The screenplay by Allan Heinberg and Geoff Johns, from a story by Heinberg & Zack Snyder and Jason Fuchs.
#WonderWoman isn’t even out yet talking of a Possible sequel… In April 2017, director Patty Jenkins talked about the possibility of a sequel, stating “I’m excited for her to come to America and become the Wonder Woman we are all familiar with from having grown up around her as an American superhero. I’d like to bring her a little farther along into the future and have a fun, exciting storyline that is its own thing. Wonder Woman 1 is so much about her becoming the person she is. I can’t wait to spring forward with who she is and have another great standalone superhero film.
Wonder Woman comes crashing into theaters June 2, 2017.

The Hartley Show: Spoilers and Trailers for Trailers: When is enough, enough?!? Our good friend Hartley has some great insight on spoilers, trailers for trailers aka the teaser trailer that creates great hype before the trailer LONG before the movie or show comes out.
Robert:Good question. When do we see enough trailers or trailer for trailers? I’m tired of teaser trailers and the 100 trailers take keep coming out before a movie hits the theatres or shows hit the TV / Netflix. Give me one big trailer and I’m done. That is enough for me! Look at the mini teaser trailers for the Justice League movie that came out 2 days before the full teaser trailer for the fncking movie. I mean enough is enough, agreed! BTW I LOVED the Six Million Dollar Man & Bigfoot episode & YES, when you missed it, you missed it. I LOVED THAT!! Great on Hartley for not going into the spoilers like The Walking Dead or Game of Thrones but spoilers are another big thing that our new social media world cannot keep hidden for long, especially NOT in the comic book world. This often spins out of control – see Hydra Captain America or Captain Hydra news. The fallout from that is so massive that there are stupid fandom that were burning the FREE Secret Empire comic book that came out in protest to Hydra Captain America or Captain Hydra. Stupid. Stupid fandom but fueled by the spoilers & over hype of the twisted idea of a Nazi Captain America ruling America in Secret Empire series.
The Hartley Show: Iron Fist: Yay, Nay or Meh? I’m slowly catching up on my Hartley Show episodes (sorry guys). Hartley rambles on about the Netflix Iron Fist show and how they relate to the Iron Fist comic book by Marvel Comics. A VERY enjoyable episode, thanks to all involved!
Robert: Agreed, I LIKED Netflix Iron Fist show but didn’t LOVE it like I did Daredevil (seasons 1 & 2), Jessica Jones & Luke Cage. I believe that Bruebaker & Fraction’s “The Immortal Iron Fist” took the character to a brand new level after Bendis brought Iron Fist into New Avengers. I think Hartley missed that the Spider Ninja woman was the “Bride of Nine Spiders” & one of the Immortal Weapons. I do defend that this is along the lines of a Batman Begins like story-line for Iron Fist in the Marvel Netflix universe in that he’s learning how to be both Danny Rand & Iron Fist so there are times when he fails at one or the other since it’s the first time he’s been to the outside world in 15 years from K’un-L’un. Now do I believe that the show and Finn Jones could have done a better job at playing Danny Rand & the Iron Fist – HELL YEAH! Hopefully in the upcoming Defenders series, Iron Fist will be the character we want him to be especially when playing off Luke Cage.
From their YouTube page: Hartley desperately tries to maintain focus talking about Iron Fist, but man the show was such a roller coaster it takes all his brain power to stay on point!
Watch Hartley struggle!

The DARK TOWER trailer. The DARK TOWER, based on the Stephen King novels, along with some pretty quotable moments brought to life — “I do not kill with my gun. I kill with my heart”, and very likely at the box office. The DARK TOWER stars Matthew McConaughey (Man in Black), Katheryn Winnick (Laurie Chambers), and Idris Elba (The Gunslinger). I’ve never finished reading the books, found the 1st book dead boring ages ago but I might need to re-think that based on this trailer. I’ll watch ANYTHING with Idris Elba & Matthew McConaughey. Did Marvel screw up NOT pushing harder to get Matthew McConaughey in their films? Looks like it.
The Defenders trailer. THIS. IS. IT. The next big Marvel, Netflix show #TheDefenders trailer hits the Interwebs. Check out the fun as The Defenders series that will team-up Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock / Daredevil, Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Mike Colter as Luke Cage, and Finn Jones as Danny Rand / the Iron First. Lots of action, chaos, mystery & comedy in this new trailer. Expect to see more of Vincent D’Onofrio as Wilson Fisk aka the Kingpin, Madame Gao, The Hand & the upcoming mysterious villain Alexandra played by Sigourney Weaver. Lots of supporting characters from Élodie Yung as Elektra Natchios, Scott Glenn as Stick, Rosario Dawson as Claire Temple, Simone Missick as Misty Knight and Jessica Henwick as Colleen Wing. Lastly, Stan Lee makes a cameo appearance – of course! Love the use of Nirvana’s “Come as You Are” in the #TheDefenders trailer.
“The War For New York Is Here, So Get Your Sh*t Together” – Stick
Marvel’s The Defenders follows Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist. A quartet of singular heroes with one common goal – to save New York City. This is the story of four solitary figures, burdened with their own personal challenges, who realize they just might be stronger when teamed together.
Premise Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy in The Hand.
The Defenders Cast Charlie Cox will return as Matt Murdock/Daredevil, as will Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Finn Jones as Iron Fist, and Mike Colter as Luke Cage. Don’t be surprised if some other characters we meet along the way join the party, like Jon Bernthal’s Punisher. Expect supporting cast from each of their shows to at least make appearances, and that will likely include Elden Henson as Foggy Nelson.
EW also unveiled the first proper look at the team together:
